ICC Champions trophy: Australia vs Bangladesh match abandoned due to rain
The fifth game of the ICC Champions trophy 2017 between Australia and Bangladesh at the Oval was called off due to steady rain. Steve Smith’s side were chasing 183 to beat Bangladesh. Having scored 83-1 from 16 overs, Australia only needed to play for four more overs to be eligible to win via the Duckworth-Lewis rule for rain-affected game. With England, who won their opener against Bangladesh, due to play New Zealand in the next Group A fixture, two-time champions Australia will have to beat the hosts in Birmingham on June 10 to qualify for the semi-finals. Tamim Iqbal’s 95 was the highlight for Bangladesh, who are winless and face New Zealand in their final group tie. Each team got one point.
